    A beautiful place to visit and spend some time. Filled with amazing art and also a very atmospheric place to sit quietly for a few moments. A hidden gem.

    Relic of baby Jesus manger /alter.

    A must to go to pray, contemplate and leave a Mass request. I did for my son and grandson. The atmosphere is ancient and holy. The artwork adorning the whole interior is breath-taking.

Since its unique development, it has experienced a kind of few changes and augmentations, however the center of the structure stays flawless. The congregation is commended for the numerous mosaics found inside it, which are of specific notable worth, as they speak to one of the principal known cases of the Virgin Mary's portrayal in Late Antiquity. The Crypt of the Nativity is likewise found inside the congregation's walls, and the Oratory of the Nativity rests underneath the congregation's sacred place.
